Langy, Allier, Auvergne - Spacious detached house

The house is situated in the heart of the Bourbonnais country of the northern Auvergne in the small village of Langy 20k NE of Vichy. It is a spacious detached house with a large garden and sleeps 8 people. In the centre of the village, it overlooks the square and 12th century Romanesque church.

Langy is a peaceful village. The village nestles in a slight dip, and the surrounding countryside is rolling farmland, and the Bourbonnais mountains can be seen from the upstairs windows. Nightingales arrive in the garden and village from mid April and can be heard singing at night, and there is plenty of other birdlife and wildlife including red squirrels.

The last weekend in August is the time of the annual Langy fete, with a barbecue for the whole village on Saturday evening, and a 'brocante' (bric a brac fair) which takes over the whole village on Sunday.

There are shops and restaurants in nearby villages, and the nearest town, Varennes Sur Allier, is only a 10 minute drive away.

Langy is 20k from the elegant spa city of Vichy with its parks, sporting facilities, restaurants, casino, cinemas, concerts, shops and opportunity to take the waters.

The Auvergne is a beautiful region of France, as yet largely undiscovered by the British. It caters for a wide variety of interests such as walking, cycling, sports and general sightseeing, and of course relaxing and enjoying the French way of life.
